Keep It Simple #essentialsofrecovery

“Don’t give your advice before you are called upon.”

—Desiderius Erasmus
If someone wants your advice, the person will ask for it. That’s one reason why in Twelve Step programs we don’t go around trying to talk people into joining. But people will ask us for advice. They’ll see how we’ve changed, and they’ll want what we have. All we have to do is tell them where we found it—in AA, NA or another Twelve Step group. We don’t tell them what to do. We tell them our own story—what it was like, what happened, and where we are now. And we invite them to join us.

Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, help me carry the healing message of the program to these who ask for advice.

Action for the Day: I’ll make a decision to spend time with the next person who asks for my help.
